In his welcome address, President Hafiz Sherali remarked that the presence of both Mawlana Hazar Imam and Princess Zahra Aga Khan was truly significant.

“It invokes hope, trust, and confidence for all of the volunteers working with AKDN and Jamati institutions,” Sherali said.

Addressing the guests at the dinner, Princess Zahra expressed how proud she was in celebrating the achievements and steps taken every day by the institutions in the development of Pakistan and other countries. Acknowledging the diverse representation of institutions, Princess Zahra emphasised the importance of all the pieces of what she called a “mosaic”, working together.

“As part of this mosaic of AKDN, I would say that one piece alone is not in itself an institution. It is the assembly of all the pieces that is greater than the whole. This mosaic that we all contribute to and work for is a wonderful thing,” she said

Mawlana Hazar Imam met with the Board of Trustees during his Diamond Jubilee visit to Pakistan. He also inaugurated the Aga Khan University’s Centre for Innovation in Medical Education (CIME), a state-of-the-art facility for technology-based learning for health professionals.
